The airline industry has moved on and the A380 is now somewhat of a dinosaur.
It was a massive technical achievement and it delivers a superb passenger experience.
However new more fuel efficient twin engined craft are now taking over the long haul market.
The A350 is set to become the Airbus flagship.
That said it won't dsaapear overnight, certainly plenty to be seen at LHR when I flew in last week

I wonder if the turnaround time is also a factor? How many airports can cope with that number of passengers on one flight? My one and only wide body flight was an awful experience at check in and baggage claim although I dare say things have improved in the intervening 30 years
Most of my more recent flights have been on aircraft with less than 100 seats, much more civilised and less tendency to moo when boarding.
